Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

AnimBP skeleton mesh issue

Im new to UE, be kind :)

I have been trying to add an animation to the default ThirdPerson_animBP but i am getting error messages about the references being different to my skeleton mesh. ![alt text

I bought some animations from the UE marketplace which use the UE4 template skeleton, ? apparently they are considered separate skeletons as they are in different location? I've tried to change the skeletons on the animations i want to use but no such luck.

Can somebody tell me what im doing wrong/how to get both skeletons to work with one BP/merge skeletons?

Product Version: UE 4.17

When you buy something from the marketplace and if it says that is it rigged to the Epic's skeleton, it does not mean that you can use it right away. Why not? Because even though names/bones/files match - from computer/engine point of view they are still different files/skeletons.

This is what you can do:

1) retarget skeleton - there are plenty of videos available online how to do that.

2) simply delete a skeleton from the animation pack that you purchased. Engine will offer you options: delete or replace. You need to choose "replace". And you replace it with your existing skeleton. The engine will update all purchased animations with a new skeleton and you can use them normally.
